B.o.B. brings hip hop to Utah


Be sure not to miss these great artists put on an unforgettable show.

Turn on any pop radio station, and it will only be a matter of time before you catch one of B.o.B.’s catchy, infectious tunes.

Since coming onto the scene in March 2010, the man has had three straight top 10 hits on the Billboard chart, a number one album and has teamed up with popular musical acts such as Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams and Weezer lead singer Rivers Cuomo.

Now he’s teaming up with the equally beloved hip hop/rap artist Jason Derulo, along with Iyaz and Auburn, to bring UVU an unforgettable show at the UCCU Center.

Jason Derulo started his career at age 16 as a songwriter for Diddy, formerly Puff Daddy, and Sean Kingston, but became famous in his own right in August of last year with his debut single, “Whatcha Say.” The song samples the haunting Imogen Heap track “Hide and Seek,” and hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in Nov. 2009.

Derulo followed that up with another top 10 hit, “In My Head,” and released his first album in March of this year. He recently finished touring with the wildly popular, if not completely controversial, Lady Gaga.

There’s not much to be said about newcomers Iyaz or Auburn, but Iyaz has already established himself in the hip hop community with his catchy Reggae-inspired single “Replay,” also a Billboard top 10 hit.

Between these four performers, there are seven top 10 hits and two very successful albums. This show is not one to be missed for anyone that considers oneself, at the very least, a casual fan of the genre, or just anyone that enjoys a good show.

The concert will be held on Oct. 12 at 7:00 p.m. and tickets are anywhere from $15-$35 with a UVU student ID or $21-$41 without.  Student discount tickets are only available at the UCCU box office. For more information, visit www.UCCUCenter.com or www.SmithsTix.com
